    SWA733 it's funny you should say that because I've been a bit unwell recently

    Maybe I was a bit heavy handed with my comments. I just think that even a fake cat getting decapitated is in extremely poor taste.

    Maybe it's a sign of the times that we are less shocked by (and even find) violence humourous. I mean, there are even computer games where we can disintegrate people with rocket launchers, and steal their cars.

    I can say with great confidence that this commercial wouldn't have been made 30 years ago. What can we expect in another 30 years time?

        Ford Upset by Web Ad Showing Decapitation
        Sun Apr 18, 7:14 PM ET

        DEARBORN, Mich. - Ford Motor Co. is upset by the release of an Internet advertisement that depicts the decapitation of a computer-animated cat by a power moonroof hatch, saying it didn't authorize the clip.



        The ad for the Sportka, a hatchback sold in Europe, shows the realistic-looking orange cat climbing on top of the car and poking its head into the open moonroof, The Detroit News reported Sunday. The hatch slides closed, the cat struggles briefly and its headless body slides to the ground.

        Ford says the clip was conceived without its approval by ad agency Ogilvy & Mather as part of a "viral marketing" campaign for the Sportka. "Viral marketing," a type of e-mail marketing, is the electronic version of word of mouth, usually inviting recipients to forward an e-mail to others.

        "We find this unauthorized ad totally unacceptable and reprehensible and deplore the fact that it has been unofficially issued," Ford spokesman Oscar Suris said.

        Ogilvy & Mather Worldwide issued a statement saying it also didn't sanction the commercial, which was leaked onto the Internet on April 1.

        "Both companies find this unofficial advertisement totally unacceptable and reprehensible," the statement said. "The action in the video clip was totally computer generated, and we would like to assure you that no animal was harmed in its making."

            Im in stitches!!

            I was rather confused at the start though... I thought it was a spelling mistake seem as F is close to C on the keyboard, I thought you meant Celine fans!

            On enquiring to dad what this had to do with celine... he said: "mostprobably because she's a cruel b!tch"

            I was in shock, and punched him for it!
